                            THE LOANS

     Section 2.1 Loans.  Subject to the terms and conditions of
this Agreement, each Lender hereby severally agrees during the
period from the date hereof until the Maturity Date (the
"Commitment Period") to make loans (the "Loans") to Borrower in
amounts equal to the percentage interest set forth opposite such
Lender's name on Schedule 2.1 hereto (such Lender's "Percentage
Interest") of the aggregate amount requested by Borrower in a
Notice of Borrowing given hereunder provided that, after giving
effect to any such requested borrowing (a) the aggregate of all
Loans from such Lender will not exceed at any one time
outstanding the sum set forth opposite its name on Schedule 2.1
hereto (such Lender's "Commitment") and (b) the Total Utilization
will not exceed the Total Commitment.  The line of credit
extended hereunder is a revolving line of credit and, subject to
the terms and conditions hereof, Borrower may borrow, repay and
reborrow.

     Section 2.2 [Intentionally deleted].

     Section 2.3 Manner Of Borrowing.  Borrower shall give Agent
a Notice of Borrowing not later than 12:00 noon (New York time)
on the date of the proposed borrowing in the case of a Reference
Rate Loan or on the date three (3) days prior to the date of the
proposed borrowing in the case of a LIBOR Rate Loan specifying
the date of the borrowing of any Loan and the amount thereof,
which shall be an integral multiple of One Million Dollars
($1,000,000) and not less than Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000).
Such Notice of Borrowing shall be irrevocable and shall be deemed
to constitute a representation and warranty by Borrower that as
of the date of the notice, the statements set forth in Article 5
hereof are true and correct and that no Default or Event of
Default has occurred and is continuing.  On receipt of such
notice, Agent shall promptly notify each Lender by telephone
(confirmed immediately by telex, facsimile transmission or
cable), telex, facsimile transmission, or cable of the date of
the borrowing.  Each Lender shall before 2:00 p.m. (New York
time), on the date of the borrowing, pay the lesser of (a) such
Lender's Percentage Interest of the aggregate principal amount of
the requested borrowing identified in the Notice of Borrowing or
(b) the maximum amount such Lender is committed to advance
pursuant to the terms of Section 2.1 hereof in immediately
available funds to Agent.  Upon fulfillment to Agent's reasonable
satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Article 4,
and after receipt by Agent of such funds, Agent will on that same
day make such funds available to Borrower by depositing them to
an account maintained by Borrower  which account may be
designated by Borrower in a writing delivered to Agent from time
to time.

     Section 2.4 Reduction Of Commitments.  Upon not less than
three (3) Business Days' written notice to Agent, Borrower may
terminate the Total Commitment, in whole or in part, provided
that each partial reduction of the Total Commitment shall be in
an amount not less than Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) and,
provided, further, that in no event may the Total Commitment be
reduced to an amount less than the Total Utilization.  Any
reduction in the Total Commitment shall be deemed to be a
proportionate reduction in each Lender's Commitment such that
after making such reduction, each Lender's Commitment will be in
an amount equal to its Percentage Interest of the then-reduced
Total Commitment.

     Section 2.5 Repayment Of Principal.  Borrower shall repay to
Agent for the account of Lenders the then outstanding principal
balance of each Loan not later than the Maturity Date.

     Section 2.6 Agent's Right To Fund.  Unless Agent shall have
received notice from a Lender prior to 12:00 noon (New York time)
on the date of any Loan that such Lender will not make available
to Agent such Lender's Percentage Interest of the requested
borrowing, Agent may assume that such Lender has made such funds
available to Agent on the date of such Loan in accordance with
Section 2.3 hereof and Agent may, in reliance upon such
assumption, make available to Borrower on such date a
corresponding amount.  If and to the extent that such Lender
shall not have made such portion available to Agent and if Agent
shall have advanced such portion to Borrower, such Lender and
Borrower severally agree to pay to Agent forthwith on demand such
corresponding amount, together with interest thereon for each day
from the date such amount is made available to Borrower until the
date such amount is repaid to Agent, at (a) in the case of
Borrower, the Applicable Interest Rate (b) in the case of such
Lender, the Federal Funds Rate.  Any such repayment by Borrower
shall be without prejudice to any rights it may have against any
Lender that has failed to make its funds available for any
requested borrowing.

     Section 2.7 Interest On Loans.

          (a)  General Provisions.  Borrower agrees to pay to
Agent for the account of each Lender interest on the unpaid
principal amount of each Loan from the date of such Loan until
such Loan shall be due and payable at a per annum rate equal to
the Applicable Interest Rate, and, if default shall occur in the
payment when due of any such Loan, from the maturity of that Loan
until it is paid in full at a per annum rate equal to two
percentage points (2%) above the Reference Rate (changing as the
Reference Rate changes).  Accrued but unpaid interest on each
LIBOR Rate Loan shall be paid in arrears on the last day of each
Applicable Interest Period, on the date of any principal payment
(to the extent accrued on the principal amount paid), on the
Maturity Date, and, for each LIBOR Rate Loan having an Applicable
Interest Period longer than three months, at the end of the first
three months of such Applicable Interest Period.  Accrued but
unpaid interest on each Reference Rate Loan shall be paid on the
last Business Day of each calendar quarter commencing on June 30,
1998 and continuing on the last Business Day of each calendar
quarter thereafter and on the date of any principal payment (to
the extent accrued on the principal amount paid) and on the
Maturity Date.  Unpaid interest accruing on amounts in default
shall be payable on demand.

          (b)  Selection of Alternative Rates.  Borrower may,
subject to the requirements of this Section 2.7(b), on at least
three (3) Business Days' prior written notice elect to have
interest accrue on any Loan or any portion thereof at an Adjusted
LIBOR Rate for an Applicable Interest Period.  Such notice
(herein, an "Interest Rate Notice") shall be deemed delivered on
receipt by Agent except that an Interest Rate Notice received by
Agent after 12:00 noon  (New York time) on any Business Day shall
be deemed to be received on the immediately succeeding Business
Day.  Such Interest Rate Notice shall identify, subject to the
conditions of this Section 2.7(b), the Loan or portions thereof
and the Applicable Interest Period which Borrower selects.  Any
such Interest Rate Notice shall be irrevocable.  On receipt of
such Interest Rate Notice, Agent shall promptly notify each
Lender by facsimile transmission of the information set forth in
the Interest Rate Notice.  Borrower's right to select an Adjusted
LIBOR Rate to apply to a Loan or any portion thereof shall be
subject to the following conditions: (i) the aggregate of all
Loans or portions thereof to accrue interest at a particular
Adjusted LIBOR Rate for the same Applicable Interest Period shall
be an integral multiple of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) and
not less than Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000); (ii) Borrower
shall not have selected more than six (6) different Adjusted
LIBOR Rates or Applicable Interest Periods to be applicable to
portions of the Loans at any one time; (iii) an Adjusted LIBOR
Rate may not be selected for any Loan or portion thereof which is
already accruing interest at an Adjusted LIBOR Rate unless such
selection is only to become effective at the maturity of the
Applicable Interest Period then in effect; (iv) Agent or any
Lender shall not have given notice pursuant to Section 2.7(d)
hereof that the Adjusted LIBOR Rate selected by Borrower is not
available; (v) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred
and be continuing and (vi) if Borrower elects to have some
portion (but less than all) of the Loans accrue interest at a
designated Adjusted LIBOR Rate, Borrower shall select a portion
of each Lender's Loans to accrue interest at such rate in
proportion to its respective Percentage Interest.  In the absence
of an effective request for the application of an Adjusted LIBOR
Rate, the Loans or remaining portions thereof shall accrue
interest at the Reference Rate.  Any Interest Rate Notice which
specifies an Adjusted LIBOR Rate but fails to identify an
Applicable Interest Period shall be deemed to be a request for an
Adjusted LIBOR Rate for an Applicable Interest Period of one (1)
month.  The Interest Rate Notice may be given with and contained
in any Notice of Borrowing.  If Borrower delivers an Interest
Rate Notice with any Notice of Borrowing for a Loan and Borrower
thereafter declines to take such Loan or a condition precedent to
the making of such Loan is not satisfied or waived, Borrower
shall indemnify Agent and each Lender for all losses and any
costs which Agent or any Lender may sustain as a consequence
thereof including, without limitation, the costs of redeployment
of funds at rates lower than the cost to Lenders of such funds.
A certificate of Agent or any Lender setting forth the amount due
to it pursuant to this subparagraph (b) and the basis for, and
the calculation of, such amount shall be prima facie evidence of
the amount due pursuant to this subparagraph (b).  Payment of the
amount owed shall be due within fifteen (15) days after
Borrower's receipt of such certificate.

          (c)  Applicable Days For Computation of Interest.  All
computations of interest for Reference Rate Loans shall be made
on the basis of a year of (i) three hundred sixty-five (365) or
three hundred sixty-six (366) days, as the case may be, where the
Reference Rate is determined by the prime lending rate, and (ii)
three hundred sixty (360) days where the Reference Rate is
determined by the Federal Funds Rate, in each case, for the
actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the
last day) occurring in the period for which such interest is
payable.  All other computations of interest shall be made on the
basis of a year of three hundred sixty (360) days, in each case,
for the actual number of days (including the first day but
excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such
interest is payable.

          (d)  Unavailable LIBOR Rate.  If any Lender determines
that for any reason fair and adequate means do not exist for
establishing a particular LIBOR Rate or that accruing interest on
any Loan at an Adjusted LIBOR Rate by such Lender has become
unlawful, such Lender may give notice of that fact to Agent and
Borrower and such determination shall be conclusive and binding
absent manifest error.  After such notice has been given and
until such Lender notifies Borrower and Agent that the
circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, such
Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall no longer be available in respect of
Loans.  Thereafter, any request by Borrower to have interest
accrue on a Loan at such an Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall be deemed
to be a request for interest to accrue at the Reference Rate.  If
the circumstances giving rise to the notice described herein no
longer exist, the Lender shall notify Borrower and Agent in
writing of that fact, and Borrower shall then once again become
entitled to request that such an Adjusted LIBOR Rate apply to the
Loans in accordance with Section 2.7(b) hereof.

     Section 2.8 Compensation For Increased Costs.  In the event
that after the date hereof any change occurs in any applicable
law, regulation, guideline, treaty or directive or interpretation
thereof by any authority charged with the administration or
interpretation thereof or in any applicable condition imposed by
any such authority, or any condition is imposed by any authority
after the date hereof which:

          (a)  subjects any Lender to any Tax, or changes the
basis of taxation of any payments to any Lender on account of
principal of or interest on any LIBOR Rate Loan, such Lender's
Note (to the extent such Note evidences LIBOR Rate Loans) or
other amounts payable with respect to LIBOR Rate Loans (other
than a change in the rate of Taxes based solely on the overall
net or gross income of such Lender); or

          (b)  imposes, modifies or determines applicable any
reserve, deposit or similar requirements against any assets held
by, deposits with or for the account of, or loans or commitments
by, any office of any Lender in connection with its LIBOR Rate
Loans to the extent the amount of which is in excess of, or was
not applicable at the time of computation of, the amounts
provided for in the definition of the related LIBOR Rate; or

          (c)  affects the amount of capital required to be
maintained by banks generally or by corporations controlling
banks and any Lender determines that the amount by which such
Lender or any corporation controlling such Lender is required or
expected to maintain or increase its capital is increased by, or
based upon, the existence of this Agreement or of such Lender's
Loans, Letters of Credit or Commitment hereunder;

          (d)  imposes upon any Lender any other condition with
respect to its LIBOR Rate Loans or its obligation to make LIBOR
Rate Loans; which, as a result thereof, (i) increases the cost to
any Lender of making or maintaining its Loans or its Commitment
hereunder, or (ii) reduces the net amount of any payment received
by any Lender in respect of its Loans (whether of principal,
interest, commitment fees or otherwise), or (iii) requires any
Lender to make any payment on or calculated by reference to the
gross amount of any sum received by it in respect of its Loans,
in each case by an amount which such Lender in its sole judgment
deems material, then and in such case Borrower shall pay to Agent
for the account of such Lender on demand such amount or amounts
as will compensate such Lender (on an after-tax basis) for any
increased cost, deduction or payment actually incurred or made by
such Lender.  The demand for payment by any Lender shall be
delivered to both Agent and Borrower and shall state the
subjection or change which occurred or the reserve or deposit
requirements or other conditions which have been imposed upon
such Lender or the request, direction or requirement with which
it has complied, together with the date thereof, the amount of
such cost, reduction or payment and the manner in which such
amount has been calculated.  The statement of any Lender as to
the additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.8 shall
be prima facie evidence of the amounts payable hereunder
provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be liable for any
such amount attributable to any period prior to the date one
hundred eighty (180) days prior to the date that any officer at
such Lender knew or reasonably should have known of such claim
for reimbursement or compensation.

     The protection of this Section 2.8 shall be available to
each Lender regardless of any possible contention of invalidity
or inapplicability of the relevant law, regulation, guideline,
treaty, directive, condition or interpretation thereof.  In the
event that Borrower pays any Lender the amount necessary to
compensate such Lender for any charge, deduction or payment
incurred or made by such Lender as provided in this Section 2.8,
and such charge, deduction or payment or any part thereof is
subsequently returned to such Lender as a result of the final
determination of the invalidity or inapplicability of the
relevant law, regulation, guideline, treaty, directive or
condition, then such Lender shall remit to Borrower the amount
paid by Borrower which has actually been returned to such Lender
(together with any interest actually paid to Lender on such
returned amount), less Borrower's pro rata share of such Lender's
costs and expenses incurred in connection with such governmental
regulation or any challenge made by such Lender with respect to
its validity or applicability.

     Section 2.9 Prepayments.  Upon (i) one (1) Business Day's,
in the case of Reference Rate Loans and (ii) three (3) Business
Days', in the case of LIBOR Rate Loans, prior written notice to
Agent specifying the amount and date of any proposed prepayment,
Borrower shall have the right to prepay the Loans in whole or in
part, provided that each partial prepayment of principal shall be
an integral multiple of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) but not
less than Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000).  Reference Rate
Loans may be repaid at any time without penalty or premium.  If a
LIBOR Rate Loan is paid prior to the end of the Applicable
Interest Period, Borrower shall indemnify Agent and each Lender
for all reasonable losses and any reasonable costs which Agent or
any Lender may sustain as a consequence thereof including,
without limitation, the reasonable costs of redeployment of funds
at rates lower than the cost to Lenders of such funds.  A
certificate of Agent or any Lender setting forth the amount due
to it pursuant to this Section 2.9 and the basis for, and the
calculation of, such amount shall be prima facie evidence of the
amount due pursuant to this Section 2.9.  Payment of the amount
owed shall be due within fifteen (15) days after Borrower's
receipt of such certificate.  Such an indemnity payment will be
required in all circumstances where such a Loan is paid prior to
the end of the Applicable Interest Period, regardless of whether
such payment is voluntary, mandatory, required pursuant to
Section 2.5 hereof, or the result of Agent's or Lenders'
collection efforts.

     Section 2.10   Notes.  The Loans shall be evidenced by
promissory notes of Borrower substantially in the form of Exhibit
A hereto, with appropriate insertions, payable to the order of
the Lenders, dated as of the date hereof, and for each Lender in
the face amount of such Lender's Commitment (the "Notes").

     Section 2.11   Manner Of Payments.

          (a)  All payments and prepayments of principal and
interest on any Loan and all other amounts payable hereunder by
Borrower to Agent or any Lender shall be made by paying the same
in United States Dollars and in immediately available funds to
Agent at its payment office listed on the signature pages hereto
not later than 12:00 noon.  (New York time) on the date on which
such payment or prepayment shall become due.  All payments to be
made by Borrower shall be made without set-off, recoupment or
counterclaim.

          (b)  Whenever any payment hereunder or under any other
Loan Document shall be stated to be due or whenever the last day
of any interest period would otherwise occur on a day other than
a Business Day or on a day for which there is no numerically
corresponding day in the applicable calendar month, such payment
shall be made and the last day of such interest period shall
occur on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of
time shall in such case be included in the computation and
payment of interest or facility fees, as the case may be, unless
such extension would cause such payment to be made or the last
day of such interest period to occur in the next following
calendar month, in which case such payment shall be due and the
last day of such interest period shall occur on the last Business
Day of the current calendar month and such reduction of time
shall in such case reduce the amount of interest and commitment
fees accruing in such period accordingly.

     Section 2.12   Application Of Payments.  Any payments made
by Borrower in respect of amounts owing by it hereunder or under
any other Loan Document shall be applied in the manner directed
by Borrower and, in the absence of any such direction, such
payments and any prepayments of any Loan shall be applied first
against fees, expenses and indemnities due hereunder; second,
against interest due on matured obligations in respect of any
Letter of Credit, if any; third, against interest due on amounts
in default on any Loan, if any; fourth, against interest due on
any Loan; fifth, against matured obligations in respect of any
Letter of Credit, if any; sixth, against Loan principal amounts
in default; seventh, against Loan principal until the Loans are
paid in full; and thereafter as collateral security for
obligations in respect of unmatured Letters of Credit.  Any
payments received by Agent or any Lender by any means and from
any source after the occurrence and during the continuation of an
Event of Default shall be applied to such portions of Borrower's
obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document and in
such order as Majority Lenders may elect in their sole discretion
or, in the absence of such an election, in such order as Agent
may elect in its sole discretion.

     Section 2.13   Fees.

          (a)  Facility Fees.  Borrower agrees to pay to Agent
for the account of Lenders in proportion to their Percentage
Interests a facility fee on the Total Commitment computed daily
at a per annum rate equal to the Facility Fee Rate set forth in
the table below.  Facility fees shall be payable in arrears on
the last Business Day of each calendar quarter, on the Maturity
Date, and on demand after default.  Computations of facility fees
shall be made on the basis of a year of three hundred sixty (360)
days for the actual number of days (including the first day but
excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such
fees are payable.  As used herein the "Facility Fee Rate" shall
be determined in accordance with the following table:

   EBITDA Rating      Facility Utilization    Facility Fee Rate
   -------------      --------------------    -----------------

      Level 1                < 50%            15.0 basis points (0.150%)
                             > 50%            17.5 basis points (0.175%)
      Level 2                < 50%            20.0 basis points (0.2000%)
                             > 50%            22.5 basis points (0.225%)
      Level 3                < 50%            25.0 basis points (0.250%)
                             > 50%            27.5 basis points (0.275%)

                             > 50%            32.5 basis points (0.325%)
      Level 5                < 50%            35.0 basis points (0.350%)*

      Level 6                 N/A             50.0 basis points (0.500%)
*Initial Pricing Level

          (b)  Upfront Fee.  Borrower agrees to pay to Agent for
the account of Lenders in proportion to their Percentage
Interests, a fee in an amount equal to 10 basis points (0.10%) of
the Total Commitment payable on the execution and delivery of
this Agreement.

          (c)  Agency Fees.  Borrower agrees to pay to Agent, for
its own account, the fees described in that certain letter
agreement dated as of the date hereof by and between Borrower and
Agent.

     Section 2.14   Sharing Of Payments, Etc.  Each borrowing of
Loans from Lenders under Section 2.1 hereof will be made pro rata
in accordance with each Lender's Percentage Interest.  Each
payment and prepayment of the Loans and each payment of interest
on the Loans will be made pro rata to each Lender in accordance
with its Percentage Interest.  If any Lender shall obtain any
payment in respect of Borrower's obligations under this Agreement
or the Notes (whether voluntary or involuntary, through the
exercise of any right of set-off or otherwise) in excess of the
share which it would have been entitled to receive had such
payment been made to Agent for the account of the Lenders, such
Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other Lenders such
participations in the Loans made by them as shall be necessary to
cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably
with each of them, but if any of such excess payment is afterward
recovered from such purchasing Lender, the purchase shall be
rescinded and the purchase price restored, without interest, to
the extent of such recovery.  Borrower authorizes the purchase of
such participations and agrees that any Lender so purchasing a
participation from another Lender may exercise all its rights to
payment (including the right of set off) with respect to such
participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor
of Borrower in the amount of such participation.

     Section 2.15   Extension Of Maturity Date.  Borrower may
request that Lenders extend the Maturity Date for a period of one
(1) additional calendar year by notifying Lenders and Agent in
writing on a day after the first anniversary date of this
Agreement and not less than ninety (90) days prior to the
Maturity Date.  Each Lender shall provide Borrower and Agent with
written notice of its consent or refusal to consent to such
extension within forty-five (45) days of the date on which
Borrower provides Agent and Lenders with a written request for
such an extension.  If all Lenders provide Borrower and Agent
with such a written notice the Maturity Date shall be extended
for a period of one (1) additional calendar year.  If any Lender
in its sole discretion does not provide a written notice
evidencing its consent as herein provided, the request for
extension shall be deemed denied by all Lenders.

     Section 2.16   Replacement Of Lender.

          (a)  In the event that any Lender makes a demand for
payment pursuant to Section 2.8 hereof or any Lender has
suspended its funding of LIBOR Rate Loans hereunder, Borrower
shall have the right, if no Default or Event of Default then
exists, to replace such Lender in accordance with this Section
2.16.

          (b)  If Borrower determines to replace a Lender
pursuant to this Section 2.16, Borrower shall have the right to
replace such Lender with an entity that is an Eligible Assignee
(a "Replacement Lender") provided that such Replacement Lender
(i) if it is not already a Lender, shall be acceptable to Agent,
which acceptance shall not be unreasonably withheld, (ii) shall,
in its sole discretion, unconditionally agree in writing (with a
copy to Agent) to purchase on a date therein specified all of the
rights hereunder and under the other Loan Documents of the Lender
being replaced and all of the interest in the Loans owing to such
Lender without recourse at the principal amount of such Note (the
interest and fees accrued thereon to the date of such purchase
shall be paid to the Lender being replaced when the same become
due and owing) and an amount equal to losses and costs which will
be sustained by the Lender being replaced as a consequence of
such sale resulting from the selling Lender's redeployment of
funds at rates lower than the Applicable Interest Rate thereunder
shall be reimbursed by Borrower as provided herein, and (iii)
shall, if such Replacement Lender is not already a Lender,
execute and deliver to Agent an Assignment and Acceptance
substantially in the form of Exhibit D hereto pursuant to which
such Replacement Lender becomes a party hereto with a Commitment
equal to that of the Lender being replaced.

          (c)  Upon (i) satisfaction of the requirements set
forth in subsection 2.16(b) hereof, (ii) payment to such Lender
by the Replacement Lender of the purchase price in immediately
available funds and (iii) payment to the Lender being replaced by
Borrower of all requested increased costs or additional amounts
accrued to the date of such purchase which Borrower is obligated
to pay under Section 2.8 hereof, all amounts which would have
been paid for the account of such Lender under Section 2.9 hereof
had all of the Loans been fully prepaid on the date of
replacement, and all other amounts owed by Borrower to such
Lender hereunder (other than the principal of and interest on the
Loans of such Lender purchased by the Replacement Lender and
interest and fees accrued thereon to the date of purchase), the
Replacement Lender shall constitute a "Lender" hereunder with a
Commitment as so specified and the Lender being so replaced shall
no longer constitute a "Lender" hereunder (and this Agreement
shall be deemed to be amended to the extent, but only to the
extent, necessary to reflect the addition of the Replacement
Lender) and the Lender being replaced shall be relieved of its
obligations hereunder.  Notwithstanding anything in this Section
2.16 to the contrary, the provisions of the Loan Documents shall
continue to inure to the benefit of the Lender being replaced as
to all matters occurring prior to the date of replacement.

                            ARTICLE 3

                        LETTERS OF CREDIT

     Section 3.1 Letters Of Credit.  Borrower may request that
Agent or any Lender issue letters of credit for Borrower's
account in accordance with the terms and conditions of this
Article 3.

     Section 3.2 Manner Of Requesting Letters Of Credit.

          (a)  Letter of Credit Requests.  From time to time
during the Commitment Period, Borrower may request that a single
Lender or, alternatively, all Lenders issue commercial or standby
letters of credit ("Letters of Credit") for Borrower's account or
extend or renew existing Letters of Credit.  A Letter of Credit
issued by a single Lender shall hereinafter be referred to as
"Single Lender Letter of Credit".  Letters of Credit issued by
all Lenders in their respective Percentage Interests shall
hereinafter be referred to as "Multi-Lender Letters of Credit."
Borrower may request a Letter of Credit by delivering a written
request for the issuance, extension or renewal of such a Letter
of Credit to Agent not later than 12:00 noon  (New York time) at
least five (5) Business Days prior to the date a new Letter of
Credit is to be issued or an existing Letter of Credit is
scheduled to expire, provided that, any request given orally
shall be confirmed by Borrower in a writing delivered to Agent
not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date such oral
request is made.  Each such request shall be deemed to constitute
a representation and warranty by Borrower that as of the date of
such request, the statements set forth in Article 5 hereof are
true and correct and that no Default or Event of Default has
occurred and is continuing. Each such written request shall
specify whether Borrower is requesting the issuance of a Single
Lender Letter of Credit or a Multi-Lender Letter of Credit.
Borrower shall request a Multi-Lender Letter of Credit only in
the event that no Lender will agree to issue a Single Lender
Letter of Credit and Agent shall then (a) approve the form of the
proposed Letters of Credit, (b) prepare the reimbursement
agreements to be executed by Borrower in favor of each Lender,
each of such agreements being identical in content and (c) notify
each Lender to issue its Multi-Lender Letter of Credit upon
Borrower's compliance with all conditions precedent to such
issuance.  Each request for a Single Lender Letter of Credit
shall specify (i) the Lender requested to issue the Letter of
Credit, (ii) the type of Letter of Credit, (iii) the face amount
of the requested Letter of Credit (the "SLLC Amount"), (iv) the
proposed date of expiration, (v) the name of the intended
beneficiary thereof, and (vi) whether such Letter of Credit is an
extension or renewal of an existing Letter of Credit.  If
Borrower is requesting a Multi-Lender Letter of Credit, then the
written request shall specify all of the information provided for
in items (ii), (iv), (v) and (vi) of the proceeding sentence plus
the aggregate face amount of the Letters of Credit (the "MLLC
Amount").  Each Letter of Credit requested hereunder (i) shall be
in a face amount such that after issuance of such Letter of
Credit (A) the Total Utilization will not exceed the Total
Commitment and (B) the Letter of Credit Usage would not exceed
$25,000,000; (ii) shall have an expiration date not later than
five (5) Business Days prior to the Maturity Date and (iii) shall
be in an SLLC Amount or MLLC Amount, as the case may be, which is
an integral multiple of $100,000 and not less than $1,000,000.

          (b)  Response to Request for Single Lender Letter of
Credit.  The Lender identified in Borrower's written request of a
Single Lender Letter of Credit shall not be obligated to issue
the Single Lender Letter of Credit.  It shall notify Agent and
Borrower in writing whether or not it intends to issue the
requested Single Lender Letter of Credit within 4 hours of its
receipt, from Agent, of Borrower's written request therefor.  Any
issued Single Lender Letter of Credit shall be subject to Article
X hereof.

          (c)  Letter of Credit Fees.  Borrower agrees to pay a
fronting fee to a Lender issuing a Single Lender Letter of Credit
in respect of such Letter of Credit in an amount determined by
the Lender and agreed to by the Borrower.  Borrower further
agrees to pay to the Agent for the account of Lenders in
proportion to their Percentage Interests a letter of credit fee
on the face amount of each Letter of Credit from the date such
Letter of Credit is issued until such Letter of Credit shall be
terminated or drawn at a per annum rate equal to the applicable
Letter of Credit Fee Rate.  Letter of credit fees shall be
payable in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar
quarter, on the Maturity Date, and on demand after default.
Computations of letter of credit fees shall be made on the basis
of a year of three hundred sixty (360) days for the actual number
of days (including the first day but excluding the last day)
occurring in the period for which such fees are payable.  As used
herein the "Letter of Credit Fee Rate" for each type of letter of
credit shall be determined daily in accordance with the following
table:

EBITDA  Facility      Commercial ("Performance")     Standby ("Financial")
Rating  Utilization   Letter of Credit Fee Rate     Letter of Credit Fee Rate
                        (expressed per annum)         (expressed per annum)

Level 6   N/A        62.5 basis points (0.625%)     125 basis points (0.125%)

*Initial Pricing Level.

          (d)  Letter of Credit Application Forms.  At the
request of the issuing Lender or each Lender, as applicable,
Borrower shall execute a letter of credit application in the
standard form then used by such Lender or Lenders (which shall
not include terms inconsistent with this Agreement), in respect
of each Letter of Credit requested hereunder.

          (e)  Issuance of Letter of Credit.  Subject to the
satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Article 4
and Borrower's compliance with the terms of this Section 3.2, the
issuing Lender or each Lender, as applicable, shall issue and
deliver its Letter of Credit to Borrower or to the designated
beneficiary at such address as Borrower may specify.  New Letters
of Credit and extensions or renewals of existing Letters of
Credit shall be in a form acceptable to Lenders.

     Section 3.3 Indemnification; Increased Costs.  Borrower
agrees to indemnify Agent and any Lender on demand for any and
all additional costs, expenses, or damages incurred by such Agent
or Lender, directly or indirectly, arising out of the issuance,
extension or renewal of any Letter of Credit or the purchase of
any Letter of Credit Risk Participation, including, without
limitation, any costs of maintaining reserves in respect thereof
and any premium rates imposed by the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation in connection therewith.  A certificate as to such
additional amounts submitted to Borrower by Agent or such Lender
shall be prima facie evidence of the amounts due hereunder.

     If at any time after the date hereof the introduction of or
any change in applicable law, rule, or regulation or in the
interpretation or the administration thereof by any Governmental
Authority charged with the interpretation or administration
thereof, or compliance by Agent or Lender with any requests
directed by any such Governmental Authority (whether or not
having the force of law) shall, with respect to any Letter of
Credit or Letter of Credit Risk Participation subject Agent or
such Lender to any Tax or impose, modify, or deem applicable any
reserve, special deposit, or similar requirements against assets
of, deposits with or for the account of, credit extended by Agent
or such Lender or shall impose on Agent or such Lender any other
conditions affecting the Letters of Credit or Letter of Credit
Risk Participation and the result of any of the foregoing is to
increase the cost to Agent or such Lender of issuing a Letter of
Credit or holding a Letter of Credit Risk Participation or to
reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by Agent or
such Lender hereunder with respect to the Letters of Credit or
Letter of Credit Risk Participation, then, upon demand by Agent
or such Lender, Borrower shall pay to Agent or such Lender such
additional amount or amounts as will compensate Agent or such
Lender for such increased cost or reduction.  The written
statement of any Lender as to the additional amounts payable
pursuant to this Section 3.3 shall be prima facie evidence of the
amounts due hereunder provided, however, that the Borrower shall
not be liable for any such amount attributable to any period
prior to the date one hundred eighty (180) days prior to the date
that any officer at such Lender knew or reasonably should have
known of such claim for reimbursement or compensation.

     Borrower agrees to indemnify and hold Agent and each Lender
(an "Indemnitee") harmless from and against any and all (a) Taxes
and other fees payable in connection with Letters of Credit,
Letters of Credit Risk Participations or the provisions of this
Agreement relating thereto, and (b) any and all actions, claims,
damages, losses, liabilities, fines, penalties, costs, and
expenses of every nature, including reasonable attorneys' fees,
suffered or incurred by the Indemnitee otherwise arising out of
or relating to this Article 3, any Letter of Credit or any Letter
of Credit Risk Participation; provided, however, any
indemnification under this Section 3.3 shall not apply to the
extent that any such action, claim, damage, loss, liability,
fine, penalty, cost, or expense arises out of or is based solely
upon the Indemnitee's willful misconduct or gross negligence.

     Section 3.4 Payment By Borrower.  Borrower agrees to fully
reimburse Agent and Lenders for all amounts paid by Agent and
Lenders under any Letter of Credit and to pay interest thereon at
the Reference Rate from the date Agent or Lenders make such
payment until the next Business Day following the date of any
demand for reimbursement by Agent or Lenders.  Such payment shall
be made in immediately available funds at each Agent's or
Lender's office for payments not later than 12:00 noon  (New York
time) on the next Business Day following the date of any demand
for reimbursement by Agent or Lenders; provided, that, if a
Lender so elects pursuant to the terms of Section 8.2 hereof,
following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event
of Default, an amount equal to the undrawn face amount of each
Letter of Credit shall become immediately due and payable.  If
Borrower shall default in its obligations to reimburse Agent or
Lenders or to make any other payment required hereunder, interest
shall accrue on the unpaid amount thereof at a per annum rate
equal to two (2) percentage points above the Reference Rate
(changing as the Reference Rate changes) from the date such
amount becomes due and payable until payment in full by Borrower.
Interest payable under this Section 3.4 on amounts paid by Agent
or Lenders under any Letter of Credit shall be calculated on the
basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable on demand.

                            ARTICLE 5

                 REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

     Borrower represents and warrants to Lenders and Agent as
follows:

     Section 5.1 Corporate Existence And Power.  Borrower is a
corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good
standing under the laws of the state of Minnesota.  Borrower is
duly qualified to do business in each other jurisdiction where
the nature of its activities or the ownership of its properties
requires such qualification, except where the failure to so
qualify would not be reasonably expected to have a material
adverse effect on the business, operations or financial condition
of Borrower.  Borrower has full corporate power, authority and
legal right to carry on its business as presently conducted, to
own and operate its properties and assets, and to execute,
deliver and perform the Loan Documents.

     Section 5.2 Corporate Authorization.  The execution,
delivery and performance by Borrower of this Agreement and the
other Loan Documents and any borrowing hereunder or thereunder,
and the request for the issuance of any Letter of Credit
hereunder or thereunder, have been duly authorized by all
necessary corporate action of Borrower, do not require any
shareholder approval or the approval or consent of any trustee or
the holders of any Indebtedness of Borrower, except such as have
been obtained (certified copies thereof having been delivered to
Agent), do not contravene any law, regulation, rule or order
binding on it or its Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws and do
not contravene the provisions of or constitute a default under
any material indenture, mortgage, contract or other agreement or
instrument to which Borrower is a party or by which Borrower or
any of its properties may be bound or affected.

     Section 5.3 Government Approvals, Etc.  No Government
Approval or filing or registration with any Governmental
Authority is required for the execution and delivery of the Loan
Documents, in connection with the performance by Borrower of all
its obligations required to be performed under the Loan Documents
prior to the date on which this representation is made or deemed
to have been made, or in connection with any of the transactions
contemplated thereby, except such as have been heretofore
obtained and are in full force and effect.

     Section 5.4 Binding Obligations, Etc.  This Agreement has
been duly executed and delivered by Borrower and constitutes, and
the other Loan Documents when duly executed and delivered will
constitute, the legal, valid and binding obligations of Borrower
enforceable against Borrower in accordance with their respective
terms, except that the enforceability thereof may be affected by
bankruptcy, insolvency, moratorium and other similar laws
affecting the rights and remedies of creditors generally and by
the effect of general principles of equity.

     Section 5.5 Litigation.  Except as reflected in the
financial statements referred to in Section 5.6 hereof or
otherwise set forth on Schedule 2 to the Disclosure Letter, there
are no actions, proceedings, investigations, or claims against or
affecting Borrower or any Subsidiary now pending before any
court, arbitrator or Governmental Authority (nor to the knowledge
of Borrower has any thereof been threatened nor does any basis
exist therefor) which would be reasonably expected to have a
material adverse effect on (a) the business, operations or
consolidated financial condition of Borrower; or (b) the ability
of Borrower to perform its obligations under this Agreement and
the other Loan Documents.

     Section 5.6 Financial Condition.  The consolidated balance
sheet of Borrower and the Subsidiaries as at August 28, 1997, and
the related statements of income and retained earnings of
Borrower and the Subsidiaries for the fiscal year then ended, and
the consolidated balance sheets of Borrower and the Subsidiaries
as at November 27, 1997 and February 26, 1998, and the related
statements of income and retained earnings of Borrower and the
Subsidiaries for the fiscal quarters then ended, copies of which
have been furnished to Agent and Lenders, fairly present in all
material respects the consolidated financial condition of
Borrower and the Subsidiaries as at such dates and the
consolidated results of operations of Borrower for the periods
then ended, all in accordance with GAAP. Since February 26, 1998
there has been no material adverse change in the financial
condition or operations of Borrower or any Subsidiary.

     Section 5.7 Title And Liens.  Borrower and each Subsidiary
has good and indefeasible title to the respective real properties
reflected in the financial statements referred to in Section 5.6
hereof and good title to all of its other properties and assets
(other than patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names,
copyrights, mask works, contractual franchises and other
comparable items of intellectual property) reflected in such
financial statements (in each case, except such as have been
since sold or otherwise disposed prior to the date of this
Agreement in the ordinary course of business or after the date of
this Agreement in accordance with the terms hereof).  All such
real and personal properties are subject to no Lien of any kind
except Liens permitted under this Agreement.  All leases
necessary in any material respect for the conduct of the business
of Borrower and each Subsidiary are valid and subsisting and are
in full force and effect.

     Section 5.8 Environmental Laws, Etc.  All properties of
Borrower and each Subsidiary and Borrower's and such Subsidiary's
use thereof comply in all material respects with applicable
zoning and use restrictions and with applicable laws and
regulations relating to the environment including, without
limitation, the Environmental Laws.  Except as disclosed on
Schedule 8 to the Disclosure Letter, without limiting the
foregoing, no Hazardous Substances have been generated,
manufactured, refined, transferred, stored, treated, transported,
handled, managed, discharged or disposed of, whether by Borrower
or, to the best of Borrower's knowledge, by any other person
onto, upon, over, beneath or from any real property owned by
Borrower or other premises owned, leased, operated, used or held
at any time by Borrower or any of the ground water beneath any
such premises (collectively, the "Premises") which in any fashion
could reasonably be expected to result in Borrower, Agent or any
Lender incurring or suffering at any time any material loss,
liability, damages, or obligations including liability for
cleanup and recovery costs and expenses.  Except as disclosed on
Schedule 8 to the Disclosure Letter, there are no past or present
events, conditions, circumstances, activities, practices,
incidents or actions at or in connection with the Premises which
could reasonably be expected to interfere with or prevent
continued compliance with any material laws or regulations
pertaining to underground storage tanks or any other
Environmental Laws or give rise to any legal liability or
otherwise form the basis of any claim, action, suit, proceedings,
hearing or investigation against or affecting Borrower under the
Environmental Laws.  There has been no disposal from the Premises
by Borrower (or to the best of Borrower's knowledge, by any other
person) directly or indirectly of any Hazardous Substances to, on
or in any site currently listed or formally proposed to be listed
on the National Priorities List under Superfund or any site
listed on any priority cleanup list compiled by any Governmental
Authority.

     Section 5.9 Taxes.  Borrower and each Subsidiary has filed
all tax returns and reports required of it, and to the best of
Borrower's knowledge, has paid all Taxes which are due and
payable, or has provided adequate reserves for payment of any
Taxes whose payment is being contested.  The charges, accruals
and reserves on the books of Borrower and each Subsidiary in
respect of Taxes for all fiscal periods to date are accurate.
There are no material disputes between Borrower or any Subsidiary
and any Governmental Authority with respect to any Taxes except
as disclosed in the balance sheet referred to in Section 5.6
hereof or otherwise disclosed to Agent and Lenders in writing
prior to the date of this Agreement.

     Section 5.10   Pari Passu Ranking.  The obligations of
Borrower to pay the principal of and interest on any Loan and all
other amounts payable hereunder rank at least pari passu both as
to payment and as to security with all other Indebtedness and
other obligations of Borrower now existing or hereafter incurred
(except (i) Indebtedness given preference as a matter of law
including, without limitation, salary obligations and pension
contribution claims; and (ii) as to security, for Indebtedness
secured by Liens permitted pursuant to Section 7.6 hereof).

     Section 5.11   Laws, Orders, Other Agreements.  Neither
Borrower nor any Subsidiary is in violation of or subject to any
contingent liability on account of any laws, statutes, rules,
regulations and orders of any Governmental Authority, except for
violations which in the aggregate would not be reasonably
expected to have a material adverse effect on the business,
operations or financial condition of Borrower or such Subsidiary.
Neither Borrower nor any Subsidiary is in material breach of or
default under any material agreement to which it is a party or
which is binding on it or any of its assets.

     Section 5.12   Federal Reserve Regulations.  Neither
Borrower nor any Subsidiary is engaged principally or as one of
its important activities in the business of extending credit for
the purpose of purchasing or carrying any margin stock (within
the meaning of Federal Reserve Regulation U), and no part of the
proceeds of any Loan will be used to purchase or carry any such
margin stock or to extend credit to others for the purpose of
purchasing or carrying any such margin stock or for any other
purpose that violates the applicable provisions of any Federal
Reserve Regulation.  Borrower will furnish to Agent or any Lender
on request a statement conforming with the requirements of
Regulation U.

     Section 5.13   ERISA.

          (a)  The present value of all benefits vested under all
Pension Plans did not, as of the most recent valuation date of
such Pension Plans, exceed the value of the assets of the Pension
Plans allocable to such vested benefits by an amount which would
represent a potential material liability of Borrower or affect
materially the ability of Borrower to perform the Loan Documents.

          (b)  No Plan or trust created thereunder, or any
trustee or administrator thereof, has engaged in a "prohibited
transaction" (as such term is defined in Section 406 of ERISA or
Section 4975 of the Code) which is not otherwise exempt and which
could subject such Plan or any other Plan, any trust created
thereunder, or any trustee or administrator thereof, or any party
dealing with any Plan or any such trust to the tax or penalty on
prohibited transactions imposed by Section 502 of ERISA or
Section 4975 of the Code.

          (c)  No Pension Plan or trust has been terminated,
except in accordance with the Code, ERISA, and the regulations of
the Internal Revenue Service and the PBGC as applicable to
solvent plans in which benefits of participants are fully
protected.  No "reportable event" as defined in Section 4043 of

not, and shall not suffer or permit any Subsidiary to, enter into
any material transaction with any Affiliate of Borrower, except
(a) with respect to any Affiliate which is not a Subsidiary upon
fair and reasonable terms not materially less favorable to
Borrower or such Subsidiary than it would obtain in a comparable
arms-length transaction with a person not an Affiliate of
Borrower or such Subsidiary; and (b) with respect to any
Affiliate which is a Subsidiary, upon fair and reasonable terms.
As used herein, "Affiliate" means, as to any person, any other

controlling person possesses, directly or indirectly, the power
to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies
of the other person, whether through the ownership of voting
securities, membership interests, by contract, or otherwise.

Subsidiary nor any member of the Controlled Group nor any Plan
will: (a) engage in any "prohibited transaction" (as such term is
defined in Section 406 or Section 2003(a) of ERISA) which is not
otherwise exempt and which could result in a material liability
to Borrower or any Subsidiary; (b) incur any "accumulated funding
deficiency" (as such term is defined in Section 302 of ERISA)
whether or not waived which could result in a material liability
to Borrower or any Subsidiary; (c) terminate any Pension Plan in
a manner which could result in a material liability to Borrower
or any Subsidiary or could result in the imposition of a material
Lien on any property of Borrower, any Subsidiary or any member of
the Controlled Group pursuant to Section 4068 of ERISA; or (d)
violate state or federal securities laws applicable to any Plan
in any material respect.

     Section 8.2 Consequences Of Default.  If an Event of Default
described in Section 8.1(g) or 8.1(h) hereof shall occur and be
continuing, then in any such case, the Total Commitment and
Lender's respective Commitments shall be immediately terminated
and, if any Loans or Letters of Credit shall have been made or
issued, the principal of and interest on the Loans, the face
amounts of all issued and outstanding Letters of Credit, and all
other sums payable by Borrower hereunder and under the other Loan
Documents shall become immediately due and payable all without
protest, presentment, notice or demand, all of which Borrower
expressly waives.  If any other Event of Default shall occur and
be continuing, then in any such case and at any time thereafter
so long as any such Event of Default shall be continuing, Agent
may, or shall at the request of the Majority Lenders, immediately
terminate the Total Commitment and Lenders' respective
Commitments and, if any Loans or Letters of Credit shall have
been made, Agent may, or shall at the request of the Majority
Lenders, declare the principal of and the interest on the Loans
and the Notes, the face amounts of all issued and outstanding
Letters of Credit, and all other sums payable by Borrower
hereunder and under the other Loan Documents to be immediately
due and payable, whereupon the same shall become immediately due
and payable all without protest, presentment, notice, or demand,
all of which Borrower expressly waives.  Agent agrees to provide
Borrower with prompt notice of any election to declare the
principal of and the interest on the Loans to be immediately due
and payable pursuant to the preceding sentence, it being agreed
that such notice may be provided after any such acceleration is
effective and after Agent and Lenders have exercised any rights
of set-off or recoupment to which they are entitled hereunder or
under applicable law and it being further agreed that the failure
to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such
acceleration, set-off or recoupment.  Amounts paid or received
hereunder in respect of issued and outstanding Letters of Credit
which exceed amounts paid by Agent under such Letters of Credit
shall be held (and applied) as cash collateral to secure the
performance of all obligations of Borrower owing to Agent and
Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.  Such
excess shall be returned to Borrower within five (5) Business
Days following demand by Borrower after such time when there are
no outstanding Loans, the Letter of Credit Usage and the Total
Commitments equal zero ($0), and there are no other fees, costs
or charges owing by Borrower to Agent or Lenders hereunder.

                            ARTICLE 9

                            THE AGENT

     Section 9.1 Authorization And Action.  Each Lender hereby
appoints and authorizes Agent to take such action as agent on its
behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement as are
delegated to Agent by the terms hereof, together with such powers
as are reasonably incidental thereto.  Agent shall have no duties
or responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this
Agreement.  The duties of Agent shall be mechanical and
administrative in nature; Agent shall not have by reason of this
Agreement a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Lender; and
nothing in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, expressed
or implied, is intended to or shall be so construed as to impose
upon Agent any obligations in respect of this Agreement or the
other Loan Documents except as expressly set forth herein.  As to
any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement,
including enforcement or collection of the Loans and Indebtedness
owed in respect of the Letters of Credit, Agent shall not be
required to exercise any discretion or take any action, but shall
be required to act or to refrain from acting (and shall be fully
protected in so acting or refraining) upon the instructions of
the Majority Lenders, and such instructions shall be binding upon
all Lenders and any holders of any Note provided that Agent shall
not be required to take any action which exposes Agent to
personal liability or which is contrary to the Loan Documents or
applicable law and provided, further, that without the consent of
Majority Lenders, Agent shall not amend this Agreement or waive
Borrower's compliance with any provision of this Agreement and
provided, further, that without the consent of all Lenders, Agent
shall not release any cash collateral received under Section 8.2
except in accordance with the terms of such Section and shall not
change or modify the Total Commitment (other than reductions made
pursuant to Section 2.4 hereof), any Lender's Commitment (other
than reductions made pursuant to Section 2.4 hereof), the
definition of "Majority Lenders", the timing or rates of interest
payments, the timing or amount of fees, the timing, amounts or
forgiveness of principal payments due in respect of Loans, or the
terms of Section 3.2(a) with respect to the expiration date of
Letters of Credit and provided, further, that the terms of
Section 2.6, Section 2.13(c) hereof, this Article 9 and Article
10 shall not be amended without the prior written consent of
Agent (acting for its own account).  In the absence of
instructions from the Majority Lenders, Agent shall have
authority (but no obligation), in its sole discretion, to take or
not to take any action, unless this Agreement specifically
requires the consent of Lenders or the consent of the Majority
Lenders and any such action or failure to act shall be binding on
all Lenders and on all holders of the Notes.  Each Lender and
each holder of any Note shall execute and deliver such additional
instruments as may be necessary or desirable to enable Agent to
exercise its powers hereunder.

     Section 9.2 Duties And Obligations.

          (a)  Neither Agent nor any of its directors, officers,
agents or employees shall be liable for any action taken or
omitted to be taken by it or any of them under or in connection
with this Agreement except for its or their own gross negligence
or willful misconduct.  Without limiting the generality of the
foregoing, Agent (i) may treat each Lender which is a party
hereto as the party entitled to receive payments hereunder until
Agent receives written notice of the assignment of such Lender's
interest herein signed by such Lender and made in accordance with
the terms hereof and a written agreement of the assignee that it
is bound hereby as it would have been had it been an original
party hereto, in each case in form satisfactory to Agent; (ii)
may consult with legal counsel (including counsel for Borrower),
independent public accountants and other experts selected by it
and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be
taken in good faith by it in accordance with the advice of such
experts; (iii) makes no warranty or representation to any Lender
and shall not be responsible to any Lender for any statements,
warranties or representations made in or in connection with this
Agreement, the other Loan Documents or in any instrument or
document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; (iv) shall not
have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance of
any of the terms, covenants, or conditions of the Loan Documents
on the part of Borrower or as to the use of the Proceeds of any
Loan, or the proceeds received in respect of any Letter of Credit
or as to the existence or possible existence of any Default or
Event of Default; (v) shall not be responsible to any Lender for
the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability,
genuineness, effectiveness, or value of this Agreement or of any
instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; and (vi) shall
incur no liability under or in respect to this Agreement by
acting upon any oral or written notice, consent, certificate or
other instrument or writing (which may be by telegram, facsimile
transmission, cable or telex) believed by it to be genuine and
signed or sent by the proper party or parties or by acting upon
any representation or warranty of Borrower made or deemed to be
made hereunder.  Agent may execute any of its duties under this
Agreement or any other Loan Document by or through agents,
employees or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of
counsel concerning all matters pertaining to such duties.  Agent
shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any
agent or attorney-in-fact that it selects without gross
negligence.

          (b)  Agent will account to each Lender for its
Percentage Interest of payments of principal of, interest on and
fees in respect of the Loans (other than fees payable to Agent
for its own account) which are received by Agent from Borrower
and will promptly remit to Lenders entitled thereto all such
payments.  Agent will transmit to each Lender copies of all
documents received from Borrower pursuant to the requirements of
this Agreement other than documents which by the terms of this
Agreement Borrower is obligated to deliver directly to Lenders.

          (c)  Each Lender or its assignee organized outside of
the United States shall furnish to Agent in a timely fashion such
documentation (including, but not by way of limitation, IRS Forms
Nos. 1001 and 4224) as may be required by applicable law or
regulation to establish such Lender's status for tax withholding
purposes.

     Section 9.3 Dealings Between Agent And Borrower.  With
respect to its Commitment and the Loans made by it, Agent shall
have the same rights and powers under this Agreement and the
other Loan Documents as any other Lender and may exercise the
same as though it were not the Agent, and the term "Lender" shall
unless otherwise expressly indicated include Agent in its
individual capacity.  Agent may accept deposits from, lend money
to, act and generally engage in any kind of business with
Borrower or any Subsidiary and any person which may do business
with Borrower or any Subsidiary, all as if Agent were not Agent
hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to Lenders.

     Section 9.4 Lender Credit Decision.  Each Lender
acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon
Agent or any other Lender and based upon such documents and
information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit
analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender
also acknowledges that it will, independently and without
reliance upon Agent or any other Lender and based upon such
documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the
time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not
taking action under this Agreement.

     Section 9.5 Indemnification.  Lenders agree to indemnify
Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by Borrower) ratably
according to their respective Percentage Interests from and
against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages,
penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or
disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be
imposed on, incurred by or asserted against Agent in any way
relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Loan
Document or any action taken or omitted by Agent under this
Agreement or any other Loan Document, except any such as result
from Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct.  Without
limiting the foregoing, each Lender agrees to reimburse Agent
promptly on demand in proportion to its Percentage Interest for
any out-of-pocket expenses, including legal fees, incurred by
Agent in connection with the administration or enforcement of or
the preservation of any rights under this Agreement or any other
Loan Document (to the extent that Agent is not reimbursed for
such expenses by Borrower) including without limitation, expenses
incurred in connection with any Letter of Credit.

     Section 9.6 Successor Agent.  Agent may give written notice
of resignation at any time to Lenders and Borrower and may be
removed at any time with cause by the Majority Lenders.  Upon any
such resignation or removal, the Majority Lenders shall have the
right to appoint a successor Agent.  If no successor Agent shall
have been so appointed by the Majority Lenders and shall have
accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after Agent's
giving of notice of resignation or the Majority Lenders' removal
of Agent, then Agent may on behalf of Lenders, appoint a
successor Agent, which shall be (a) a Lender or (b) another bank
organized under the laws of the United States or of any state
thereof, or any affiliate of such bank, and having a combined
capital and surplus of at least Five Hundred Million Dollars
($500,000,000).  Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent
hereunder by a successor Agent, such successor Agent shall
thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights,
powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the
retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and
obligations under this Agreement.  Until the acceptance by such a
successor Agent, the retiring Agent shall continue as "Agent"
hereunder.  Notwithstanding any retiring Agent's resignation or
removal hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article 9
shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to
be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement.  Any
company into which Agent may be merged or converted or with which
it may be consolidated or any company resulting from any merger,
conversion or consolidation to which it shall be a party or any
company to which Agent may sell or transfer all or substantially
all of its agency relationships shall be the successor to Agent
without the execution or filing of any paper or further act,
anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding.

                           ARTICLE 10

                       RISK PARTICIPATIONS

     Section 10.1   Sale Of Risk Participations.  Any Lender who
issues a Letter of Credit shall be deemed to have sold to each
Lender (including itself), and each Lender severally shall be
deemed to have unconditionally and irrevocably purchased from
such issuing Lender, an undivided risk participation in each
Letter of Credit as of the date such Letter of Credit is issued.
Each risk participation sold hereunder shall be sold to Lenders
in fractional amounts in proportion to their Percentage Interest.

     Section 10.2   Notice Of Participations.  Via telex,
facsimile transmission, telegram or cable, Agent will advise each
Lender of its respective Percentage Interest of each Letter of
Credit on the same day such Letter of Credit is issued as
requested by Borrower pursuant to Article 3 hereof.  Said notice
shall contain the following information: (i) the face amount of
the Letter of Credit issued, (ii) the number of such Letter of
Credit, (iii) the date of issuance, (iv) the identity of the
issuer, and (v) the maturity or expiration date of such Letter of
Credit.  Agent shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire
as to the accuracy of any information furnished by Borrower to
Agent in respect of any Letter of Credit.

     Section 10.3   Payment Obligations.

          (a)  Reimbursements to Agent.  In the event Borrower
fails to fully reimburse any issuing Lender for amounts disbursed
under a Letter of Credit ("Letter of Credit Payment") by 12:00
noon (New York time) on the date reimbursement is demanded, such
issuing Lender shall promptly notify Agent, and each Lender
shall, upon receipt of notice from Agent of such failure, pay to
Agent the amount of such Lender's Percentage Interest of the face
amount of such Letter of Credit Payment, as the case may be,
provided, however, if Borrower pays a portion but less than all
of the face amount of any such Letter of Credit Payment, Lenders
shall pay Agent only their respective Percentage Interests of the
difference between the face amount of the Letter of Credit
Payment and the amount paid by Borrower on account of such Letter
of Credit Payment.  Each and every payment to be made by Lenders
to Agent under this Section 10.3(a) shall be made by federal wire
transfer in immediately available funds.  If any Lender receives
notice from Agent by 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on any Business
Day of its obligation to make payments under this subsection,
then such Lender shall make such payment no later than 2:00 p.m.
(New York time) on the day such notice is received.  If any
Lender receives such notice after 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on
any Business Day, then such Lender shall make such payment by no
later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the next succeeding
Business Day.  If any Lender fails to make such payment by the
date and time required, its obligation shall bear interest from
and including the date when such payment was due until paid at
the per annum rate equal to the Federal Funds Rate.

          (b)  Payments to Lenders.  Agent shall promptly remit
to each Lender such Lender's Percentage Interest of any letter of
credit fees or other amounts received from or for the account of
Borrower in respect of any Letter of Credit.  In the event Agent
is required to refund any amount which is paid to it or received
by it from or for the account of Borrower, then Lenders, to the
extent they shall have previously received their Percentage
Interest of such amount, agree to repay to Agent their respective
Percentage Interest of such amount.

          (c)  Reimbursements to Lenders.  Borrower agrees to
reimburse any Lender for amounts paid by such Lender to Agent
pursuant to Section 10.3(a) hereof.

                           ARTICLE 11

                          MISCELLANEOUS

     Section 11.1   No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative.  No failure
by Agent or any Lender to exercise, and no delay in exercising,
any right, power or remedy under this Agreement or any other Loan
Document in and of itself shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor
shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or
remedy under this Agreement or any other Loan Document preclude
any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any
other right, power, or remedy.  The exercise of any right, power,
or remedy shall in no event constitute a cure or waiver of any
Event of Default under this Agreement or any other Loan Document
nor prejudice the rights of Agent or any Lender in the exercise
of any right hereunder or thereunder.  The rights and remedies
provided herein and therein are cumulative and not exclusive of
any right or remedy provided by law.

relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document and
irrevocably waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any
objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of
venue in any such action or proceeding in any such forum, and
hereby further irrevocably waives any claim that any such forum
is an inconvenient forum.  Borrower agrees that a final judgment
in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be
enforced in any other jurisdiction by suit on the judgment or in
any other manner provided by law.  Nothing in this Section 11.3
shall impair the right of Agent or any other Lender or the holder
of any Note to bring any action or proceeding against Borrower or
its property in the courts of any other jurisdiction, and
Borrower irrevocably submits to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of
the appropriate courts of the jurisdiction in which Borrower is
incorporated or sitting in any place where property or an office
of Borrower is located.

     Section 11.4   Waiver Of Jury Trial.  THE PARTIES HERETO
WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING TO

DOCUMENT OR AGREEMENT DELIVERED OR WHICH MAY IN THE FUTURE BE
DELIVERED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THEREWITH OR ARISING FROM ANY
RELATIONSHIP EXISTING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY
OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT, AND AGREE THAT (A) ANY SUCH ACTION OR
PROCEEDING SHALL NOT BE TRIED BEFORE A JURY AND (B) ANY PARTY

     Section 11.6   Assignment And Participations.  This
Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the
parties and their respective Successors and assigns, provided
that Borrower may not assign or otherwise transfer all or any
part of its rights or obligations hereunder or under any other
Loan Document without the prior written consent of Agent and all
Lenders, and any such assignment or transfer purported to be made
without such consent shall be ineffective.  Any Lender may at any
time sell to any Eligible Assignee participation interests in its
Loans and Commitment.  Such sales may be made without the consent
of Agent, any other Lender or Borrower provided, however, (a)
that the selling Lender shall have provided Borrower with prior
written notice of the sale of any participation interest in any
Loan or in such Lender's Commitment; and (b) that the selling
Lender retains the right to vote as a Lender hereunder in respect
of the interest sold without being bound to obtain the consent of
its participant or to exercise its rights in accordance with
instructions received from its participant (except that the
participant's consent can be required for proposed changes to the
timing or amount of principal payments or changes to the timing,
rate or amount of payments of interest or fees).  Any Lender may
pledge or assign all or any part of its interest under the Loan
Documents for security purposes to any Federal Reserve Bank.  Any
Lender may assign or otherwise transfer to any Eligible Assignee
all or any part of its interest under the Loan Documents pursuant
to an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, substantially in the
form of Exhibit D hereto (y) without the consent of Agent, any
other Lender, or Borrower to any of the assigning Lender's
affiliates or to any other Lender; or (z) with the prior written
consent of Agent and, if no Event of Default shall have occurred
and be continuing, Borrower, (such consents not to be
unreasonably withheld or delayed) but without the consent of the
other Lenders, to any other Eligible Assignee provided, however,
that in either case no such assignment (as distinguished from the
sale of a participation) other than an assignment of a Lender's
entire interest under the Loan Documents (i) shall be made in an
amount less than Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) nor (ii) shall
be made if after giving effect to such assignment the aggregate
amount of the Loans and unused Commitment of the assigning Lender
would be less than Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) and
provided, further, that in connection with any assignment (as
distinguished from the sale of a participation) the assigning
Lender shall pay to Agent a fee of Three Thousand Five Hundred
Dollars ($3,500) for each proposed assignee that is not then a
Lender or an affiliate thereof.  The assignee of any permitted
sale or assignment (including assignments for security and sales
of participations) shall have the same rights and benefits
against Borrower under the Loan Documents (excepting however, in
the case of sales of participations, the right to grant or
withhold consents or otherwise vote in respect thereof) including
the right of setoff, and in the case of any outright assignment
(as distinguished from an assignment for security or the sale of
a participation) the same obligations in respect thereof, as if
such assignee were an original Lender.  Except to the extent
otherwise required by the context of this Agreement, the word
"Lender" where used in this Agreement shall mean and include any
holder of a Note originally issued to a Lender hereunder, and
each such holder shall be bound by and have the benefits of this
Agreement the same as if such holder had been a signatory hereto.
Any outright assignment of a Lender's interest hereunder to
another Lender made in conformance with the terms of this Section
11.6 shall result in a corresponding adjustment to the selling
and purchasing Lenders' Commitments and Percentage Interests.

     Section 11.7   Borrower's Indemnity.  Whether or not the
transactions contemplated hereby shall be consummated, Borrower
shall pay, indemnify and hold each Lender, Agent and each of
their respective officers, directors, employees, counsel, agents
and attorneys-in-fact (each, an "Indemnified Person") harmless
from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses,
damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, charges,
expenses or disbursements (including reasonable attorney's fees,
which may include the allocated charges of internal legal
counsel) of any kind or nature whatsoever (collectively,
"Losses") which may at any time (including at any time following
repayment of the Loans and the termination, resignation or
replacement of the Agent or replacement of any Lender) be imposed
on, incurred by or asserted against any such person in favor of
any third-party in any way relating to or arising out of this
Agreement or any document contemplated by or referred to herein,
or the transactions contemplated hereby, or any action taken or
omitted by any such person under or in connection with any of the
foregoing, including any Losses resulting from the inaccuracy of
any representation or warranty by Borrower when made or deemed
made by Borrower hereunder and including Losses incurred with
respect to any investigation, litigation or proceeding (including
any insolvency proceeding or appellate proceeding) related to
this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any actual or
proposed use of proceeds of the Loans hereunder, whether or not
any Indemnified Person is a party thereto (all of the foregoing,
collectively the "Indemnified Liabilities"); provided, that
Borrower shall have no obligation hereunder to any Indemnified
Person with respect to Indemnified Liabilities arising from the
gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified
Person.  All amounts owing under this Section 11.8 shall be paid
promptly upon demand.  At the election of any Indemnified Person,
Borrower shall defend such Indemnified Person in respect of any
Indemnified Liabilities using legal counsel reasonably
satisfactory to such Indemnified Person at the sole cost and
expense of Borrower.

     Section 11.8   Set-Off.  In addition to any rights and
remedies of the Lenders provided by law, if an Event of Default
exists or the Loans have been accelerated, each Lender is
authorized at any time and from time to time, without prior
notice to Borrower, any such notice being waived by Borrower to
the fullest extent permitted by law, to set-off and apply any and
all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or
final) at any time held by, and other indebtedness at any time
owing by, such Lender to or for the credit or the account of
Borrower against any and all obligations owing to such Lender,
now or hereafter existing, irrespective of whether or not Agent
or such Lender shall have made demand under this Agreement or any
Loan Document and although such obligations may be contingent or
unmatured.  Each Lender agrees promptly to notify Borrower and
Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Lender;
provided, however, that the failure to give such notice shall not
affect the validity of such set-off and application.

     Section 11.9   Severability.  Any provision of this
Agreement or any other Loan Document which is prohibited or
unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall as to such jurisdiction
be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or
unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions
hereof or affecting the validity or enforceability of such
provision in any other jurisdiction.  To the extent permitted by
applicable law, the parties waive any provision of law which
renders any provision hereof prohibited or unenforceable in any
respect.

     Section 11.10  Survival.  The indemnities of Borrower in
favor of Agent and Lenders shall survive indefinitely and,
without limiting the foregoing, shall survive the execution and
delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the
making of any Loans, the issuance of any Letters of Credit the
expiration of the Total Commitment and the repayment of all Loans
and other amounts due hereunder.

     Section 11.11  Conditions Not Fulfilled.  If the Commitments
are not borrowed owing to nonfulfillment of any condition
precedent specified in Article 4, no party hereto shall be
responsible to any other party for any damage or loss by reason
thereof, except that Borrower shall in any event be liable to pay
the fees, Taxes, and expenses for which it is obligated
hereunder.  If the conditions precedent specified in Article 4
shall have been satisfied and any Lender (the "Defaulting
Lender") fails to make its Commitment available in accordance
with the terms hereof, neither Agent nor any Lender other than
the Defaulting Lender shall be responsible to Borrower for any
damage or loss by reason thereof, nor shall Borrower or any
Lender other than the Defaulting Lender be excused from its
performance hereunder.

     Section 11.12  Entire Agreement; Amendment.  This Agreement,
together with the Exhibits and Schedule hereto, the Disclosure
Letter and the letter agreement described in Section 2.13(c)
hereof, comprise the entire agreement of the parties and may not
be amended or modified except by written agreement of Borrower
and Agent executed in conformance with the terms of Section 9.1
hereof.  No provision of this Agreement may be waived except in
writing and then only in the specific instance and for the
specific purpose for which given.

     Section 11.13  Confidentiality.  Each Lender agrees to take
and to cause its affiliates to take normal and reasonable
precautions and exercise due care to maintain the confidentiality
of all confidential information provided to it by Borrower or any
Subsidiary, or by Agent on Borrower's or such Subsidiary's
behalf, under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, and
neither it nor any of its affiliates shall use any such
information other than in connection with or in enforcement of
this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or in connection with
other business now or hereafter existing or contemplated with
Borrower or any Subsidiary; except to the extent such information
(i) was or becomes generally available to the public other than
as a result of disclosure by any Lender, or (ii) was or becomes
available on a non-confidential basis from a source other than
Borrower, provided that such source is not bound by a
confidentiality agreement with Borrower known to Lender;
provided, however, that any Lender may disclose such information
(A) at the request or pursuant to any requirement of any
Governmental Authority to which such Lender is subject or in
connection with an examination of such Lender by any such
authority; (B) pursuant to subpoena or other court process,
provided that such Lender shall use its reasonable, good faith
efforts to provide prior written notice (unless prohibited from
doing so by any applicable laws) to Borrower to allow Borrower to
seek a protective order; (C) when required to do so in accordance
with the provisions of any applicable requirement of law; (D) to
the extent reasonably required in connection with any litigation
or proceeding to which Agent, any Lender or their respective
affiliates may be party provided that except as set forth in
clause (E), provided that such Lender shall use its reasonable,
good faith efforts to provide prior written notice (unless
prohibited from doing so by any applicable laws) to Borrower to
allow Borrower to seek a protective order; (E) to the extent
reasonably required in connection with the exercise of any remedy
hereunder or under any other Loan Document; (F) to such Lender's
independent auditors and other professional advisors provided
such advisors have a need to know such information; (G) to any
participant or assignee, actual or potential, provided that such
person agrees in writing to keep such information confidential to
the same extent required of Lenders hereunder; (H) as to any
Lender or its affiliate, as expressly permitted under the terms
of any other document or agreement regarding confidentiality to
which Borrower or any Subsidiary is party or is deemed party with
such Lender or such affiliate; and (I) to its affiliates.  Upon
the execution and delivery of this Agreement by all the parties,
the confidentiality undertaking set forth in this Section 11.13
shall replace and supersede the terms of any confidentiality
agreement between Borrower and any of Agent or Lenders previously
executed prior to the date of this Agreement and shall survive
the termination of this Agreement for a period of twelve (12)
months.

     Section 11.14  Headings.  The headings of the various
provisions of this Agreement are for convenience of reference
only, do not constitute a part hereof, and shall not affect the
meaning or construction of any provision hereof.

     Section 11.15  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed
in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in
separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be
deemed to be an original, and all of which taken together shall
constitute one and the same Agreement.

                     FORM OF PROMISSORY NOTE

$_____________                                  ___________, 1998
                                               New York, New York


     For Value Received, Micron Electronics, Inc., a Minnesota
corporation ("Borrower"), hereby unconditionally promises to pay
to the order of  [Deutsche Bank AG, New York And/Or Cayman
Islands Branches], ("Lender"), in lawful money of the United
States of America and in immediately available funds, the
principal sum of __________________________ Dollars ($__________)
(the "Loan"), or, if less, so much as has been loaned by Lender
to Borrower hereunder, together with accrued and unpaid interest
thereon, each due and payable on the dates and in the manner set
forth below.

      This Promissory Note is one of the Notes referred to in and
is executed and delivered in connection with that certain Credit
Agreement dated as of even date herewith and executed by
Borrower, Deutsche Bank AG, New York Branch, as administrative
agent, Deutsche Bank AG, New York Branch, and U.S. Bank, N.A., as
co-agents, and the  Lenders named therein (as the same  may from
time to time be amended, modified or supplemented or restated,
the "Credit Agreement").  Additional rights of Lender, including
rights of acceleration, are set forth in the Credit Agreement.
All capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined
herein shall have the respective meanings given to them in the
Credit Agreement.

     1.   Principal Repayment.  Subject to the terms and
conditions of the Credit Agreement, the entire outstanding
principal amount of the Loan shall be due and payable on the
Maturity Date. Reference Rate Loans may be prepaid at any time
without penalty or premium.  Prepayment of any LIBOR Rate Loan,
whether voluntary, mandatory or as the result of Agent's or
Lender's collection efforts, shall be subject to the payment of
fees as described in Section 2.9 of the Credit Agreement.

     2.   Interest Rate.  Borrower further promises to pay
interest on the outstanding principal amount hereof from the date
hereof until payment in full, which interest shall be payable at
the rates per annum and on the dates determined pursuant to the
Credit Agreement. Any principal repayment or interest payment not
paid when due, whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or
otherwise, shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the
Reference Rate (changing as the Reference Rate changes) plus 2%.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein,
interest shall not accrue at a rate in excess of the maximum rate
permitted by  applicable law.

     3.   Place of Payment.  All amounts payable hereunder shall
